Disgraceful: Dem congresswoman replaces US flag with Mexican flag on ‘Star Spangled Banner’ parade float

As the people of Eloy, Ariz., celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner with a parade, their Democratic congresswoman flew a Mexican flag on her float.

U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick posted images of her float on social media Saturday, and while not having an American flag may have been an oversight, someone made sure there was a Mexican flag prominently displayed.

Kirkpatrick tweeted this:

Robert Graham, chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, was quick to respond.

The GOP suggested Kirkpatrick purposely cropped the flag out of the twitter pictures, and posted the full version on its website: Ann Kirkpatrick “Arizona voters already know Kirkpatrick has been doing a poor job representing her constituents while she continues to support Obama’s failed policies, but flying the Flag of Mexico alone with no sign of the Flag of the United States is offensive and hurtful not just to our veterans but to every American,” Graham said.

The congresswoman was blasted by outraged Twitter followers with tweets like these:  

Perhaps it was the stress of the campaign that caused her confusion. Maybe this will clear it up:
